(State) The Iowa Attorney General's office has been getting a few calls everyday, from propane customers, concerned about the rising price of the fuel...and the supply. Spokesman Bill Brauch says,
"It doesn't appear that anyone is gaming the system but people are concerned. They are wondering how could this happen in such a short period of time. It's really a function, we think, of the supplies finally running down to the point where there needs to be rationing and they are just not able to meet demand."
Brauch says they haven't heard of any retailers not honoring contracts...They don't think that's happening. Attorneys General from across the country pland to hold a conference call/meeting later this week to talk about the issue that's affecting millions of propane customers.
